Hotpoint CIX744CE Induction Hob in black
With a sleek black finish, this Hotpoint built in induction hob will be a stylish addition to any modern kitchen.
This is a 70cm model (actually approximately 69cm wide) for that extra elbow room or for larger pans. The hob has 4 induction zones that heat up really quickly compared to ordinary ceramic hobs and because 2 zones are small and 2 are large, you have lots of flexibility. Amongst electric hobs the new induction hobs are probably the most desirable type, although you must remember that they do have some requirements about the types of pan you use with them (steel are best).
Induction Hobs are now embraced by top chefs, because they offer fast, flame-free cooking, and because manufacturers have recently developed easy-to-use, competitively priced models: a basic four-zone touch control hob now costs about half what it would have done five years ago. Induction is a more efficient choice than ceramic, halogen or solid plate electric, because of its instantaneous heating and cooling – which gives it slightly lower running costs too. Other benefits include the fact that induction hobs are easier to clean than either gas or ceramic, controllable heat means pans very rarely boil over anyway, and an absence of a naked flame means there is a reduced risk of fire. Many induction hobs provide a special boost mode that can bring a saucepan of water to the boil in just 90 seconds from a cold start.
The fuss-free touch controls on this CIX 744 CE are simple to use and are placed at the front for easy access. The boost function is an excellent feature, giving an extra surge of induction heat where needed.
Wiping away spills is easy and safe too as the electromagnets of an induction hob provide heat without the surface getting dangerously hot.
